it's unfortunate about what happened but sometimes things don't go as planned. at least they acted quickly. and melissa writes i think they are offering enough but not sure i would be that excited to get back on a another cruise ship soon. we want to know what you think. leave two cents on today's hot topic. head to the facebook fan page and we will share your comments throughout the show. well, we have seen the cars with tinted windows and wondered who is driving amount car was pulled over for being too tinted and when the window rolled down it was ray rice. rice was stopped by the baltimore county police officer in the parking lot of the game stop store in owings mills because his tinted windows were too dark. then rice sent out a twitter message saying just got pulled out for my tints smh which means shaking my head, but gave the officer an autograph for his son and he let me go. somethings are better left
untweeted. we caught with up ray rice who word it better by saying he offered the autograph after the officer gave him a warning. >> bad decision by me wording it on twitter which i wasn't trying to get fair unjustice and i did get a warning and i must get my tints fixed. >> a spokesman for the police department said officers have the option of giving a person a verbal warning or a violation with an order to get the windows fixed and the department is investigating the disipt. but ray says -- the incident but ray says he will get the windows fix night think everybody feels, you know a. little gluerieous when they don't -- glorious when they don't get a ticket. how many times have you said i have gotten out of a ticket. you never got out of a ticket. >> i never got out of a ticket. >> he did what is natural. >> i know megan pringle but that never got me off either. >> maybe it will next time. in another thing that has

the afternoon. again, we do expect a little bit more in the way of cloudiness to build in over the next couple hours. but we still should have ourselves a pleasant day with the high around 62 for the two degree guaranteed. breaking the cloud pattern tonight. back down to 36. and we should stay mostly clear on veteran's day and pleasant day for that matter at 60. we will check out rest of the forecast into the weekend which shows a little warming trend coming up in the next half- hour. back to you. >> thanks. we have taken calls from our friends or coworkers asking can i use you as reference when they are trying to get a job. >> coming next, some shy away from the responsibility. and others tell all. so how do you pick a great reference that won't harm your chance of landing the job. >> jody daniels knows. when irish eyes are smile. this weekend is something to celebrate. we will get a sneak peek at luck of the irish this weekend happening at the irish festival. and keith urban brad paysly

all you really are legally required to do is say they worked here from here to here and this is the title and salary. but, if you are creative you can get a lot of information when you ask questions about someone's work style and their skill level. >> one more question. do you hear anybody getting in trouble for gave bad reference. >> yeah. yeah. they said something that really screwed up the opportunity. and they how could you say that and that's how some lawsuits get started. >> thanks so much. she is a good reference. megan. >> she is the best. more information at joany daniels.com. thanks, guys. we are following a developing story this morning. this one out of baltimore county where the fire department says ten students have been taken to the hospital after a fight at overlea high school. it started around 7:40. two student started to fight in the cafeteria. a resource officer used pepper spray to break up the fight. one of the student fight was taken to the hospital with a broken finger. and because of the pepper spray as well. the other student was arrested by police. but stay with abc2 news because

let's get back to your two cents about the strand cruise ship near san diego. on the wmar facebook fan page, we posted the story and asked you is carnival cruise line doing enough to compensate those on bort cruise ship and becky wrote in, in 2003, we were scheduled to sail on the norway but it had an explosion in the boiler room. the week before. so, she was canceled and offered nothing. her daughter was to be married in st. thomas and they had to settle for st. petersburg in florida and juanita says yes i. think they are offering enough compensation. airlines should follow suit when the passengers are stranded. how about that. hey, if you like to share your two cents on the hot topic head
to the facebook fan page and leave a comment. megan. >> that offer is better than some. probiotics, how does it work. elizabeth is here to tell us. always good to see you. >> good to see you. >> you brought a way of it. what are probiotics. >> it's a supplement or food product that contains a live but nonharmful friendly bacteria or yeast. and that is actually similar to what we have living in our gastrointestinal tracks. so by supplementing your body with that good friendly bacteria, you know, it it's with normal digestion and can be some studies show it might boost the immune system and fend off harmful bacteria that could lead to infections. >> and make you sick. >> and make you sick. >> you hear bacteria and think it's something bad. but in this case it's good. >> in this case they are friendly bacteria. >> it's relatively new thing. are you hearing more and more
asking you coming up to say is this something i should try? >> yes. think about it. we are seeing ads for new products all the time but they have been around since yogurt has been around. and they have been available in the store in different location. you might not know they are there. but we are seeing more and more questions as they are being represented more frequently from physicians. >> and if we can wet get shots of the things you brought in. but you mentioned yogurt. does all yogurt have this? >> all yogurt contains bacteria notsinly everything is the good that might provide benefit but by the nature yogurt contains bacteria. that's how it is made. >> there are supplements if someone says don't like yogurt and i won't eat it. are there other ways to get it. >> over-the-counter products near the pharmacy counter or behind the pharmacy counter in tablets or capsules or pouter -- powder form if you not a fan of yogurt or smoothies we found it in a chocolate bar earlier today in the store. >> is that what this is. >> exactly. >> all right. jamie will have to try it.
you encourage people and i assume this is the same case come talk to the pharmacist. come ask questions. this is got to be the same thing. i am sure it's hard for people to ask you about it because it's talking about something that could potentially be embarrassing. >> yes. you have to think we hear questions every day and that's why we are there even if a conversation is not quite as comfortable as you like there's no judgment. we get questions for example is probiotic something i need to take every day as we have been hearing all the ads. they found that most people can safely add a probiotic supplement or food product to the diet. it may support a healthy immune system in some case and aid with normal die jex and regularity we will call it. but also we see it recommended in most frequently from patients that have been prescribed antibiotic therapy. think of it as an antibiotic will treat an infection caused by bad or unfriendly bacteria. but sometimes it will atact
good bacteria. and sometimes they will recommend the products and that's where we get the most questions. why did the physician ask me to do there and we are there as resource to explain what's out there and what you can choose and why that's important. >> all right. you heard it from the pharmacist. elizabeth says don't be embarrassed they hear questions all the time. ask and this is interesting because some people say it helps them not get sick. so, thanks for coming in and listening. if you want more information, go to abc2news.com and we have the information you need right there plus information on fruit andowing hello, gut. ide it is pretty good. >> that's pretty good. maybe they ought to submit that for the favorite recipe here. thanksgiving, is three weeks away, and that means plenty of cook for your large family affair and everyone has their family or favorite recipe they dig out for the turkey dinner. we want to hear about yours. from the turkey to the stuffing and salads and dessert we want to know your favorite recipe to share and our family on thanksgiving. just send your recipe in to
